Description

The bodice is McCall’s 5845, the skirt is a basic circle skirt with added pockets. Wool herringbone with cream satin lining. I doubt this dress will get much wear for a good few months since I’m all ready for spring now and this is very much a winter dress, but oh well. :)

Material Notes

Wool herringbone, satin lining

    This is a lovely dress. The fabric works well with the style – very elegant.

    Beautiful dress and what a great finish! The perfect coffee/caramel date dress. The color looks great on you. Very “french chic” (and that´s what we go for, isn´t it?)

    Looks great! Dress it up with some color and it could totally be a spring/summer dress! I’m seeing a red ribbon belt and red shoes. ;)

      That’s a great idea actually! I’m a little scared of colour so I hadn’t even considered that. I’m not too big on red, but perhaps coral could work… :)

      Well I do live way up north, so it is certainly still cold enough to wear it. I guess I just have spring on my mind and am aching for lighter and more colourful things. ;)

    Very very pretty! I would have never thought of making a dress out of herringbone, but it looks stunning! Also your hem is very nice, you did a good job!
